Black Mermaid by Rene Walrus

SMG_7582I am SO excited that I get to introduce you to this collection today from Rene Walrus!


Established in 2005, Rene Walrus is a luxury accessory label specialising in headpieces. Each design is meticulously constructed by hand in Edinburgh using a combination of fine elements including Swarovski crystals, glass bugle beads and silk.


Recent accolades include the nomination for Accessory Designer of the Year at the 2012 Scottish Fashion Awards, a catwalk collaboration with the luxury hosiery label, Bebaroque  and Best Bridal Accessories nominee at the VOWS Awards in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 & 2012.


The Black Mermaid collection is a shimmering cascade of crystals, pearls and sequins in a watery palate of silver, grey-blues, jet, sand and gold.


Inspired by the Greek myth of the sirens the designs are both beautiful and beguiling, opulent and dark yet delicate and fluid.


“With this collection we wanted to create a range for the fashionista bride who’s not afraid to defy conventions, headdresses that could just a easily be seen on a Hollywood A-lister sauntering down the red carpet as a bohemian bride gliding down the aisle.”

How beautiful are these pieces? I’d quite like the Kelp Headdress to wear, like, ALL THE TIME!! 

Which is your favourite?
